After the first day of voluntary mini-camp, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said incumbent quarterback Josh Rosen has "done everything humanly possible on the field. He is very confident and very cerebral."

The Rams have exercised the fifth-year option on QB Jared Goff's rookie contract, GM Les Snead said. The Rams made a historic move in the 2016 draft to trade up from the 15th to top overall pick to select Goff. After seven winless starts as a rookie under Jeff Fisher, Goff has gone 24-7 the last two seasons under Sean McCay and led the team to an appearance in Super Bowl LIII.

Frank Clark averaged a pass rush win rate of 22% each of the last two seasons – right around league average. That could suggest that his sack totals (13 last season, 9 the year before) were a little lucky. Alternatively, he might be a particularly strong finisher but just doesn't get the kind of regular pressure that one might expect for a 13-sack player. PRWR is an ESPN metric powered by NFL Next Gen Stats.

With kicker Robbie Gould rescinding all contract proposals and requesting a trade to get back closer to his home in Chicago, the 49ers now must figure out what to do with him and, if they trade him, how to replace him. As recently as Monday, GM John Lynch said Gould would be with the team in 2019 but if that is going to happen, it's apparently going to happen after a long standoff between the sides. Gould's agent told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gould, whom the 49ers used the franchise tag on earlier this offseason, was "unsure when or if he will report. It will not be prior to Sept 8, at the earliest, if at all." For a team with far bigger issues and problems to solve, dealing with a disgruntled kicker and potentially having to replace him is an unwanted headache at a hectic time.

This marks the second consecutive year a designated franchise tag player has been traded, with WR Jarvis Landry getting tagged by the Dolphins last year and then traded to the Browns. Prior to that, a tag and trade hadn't happened since the Patriots did so with QB Matt Cassel in 2009 before trading him to the Chiefs, where he was given a long-term deal. The last time a defensive end was traded after receiving the franchise tag designation was Jared Allen in 2008, who was traded from the Chiefs to the Vikings.

The Seahawks are trading Frank Clark to the Chiefs for a 2019 first-rounder, a 2020 second and a swap of third-round picks this year, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. GM John Schneider didn't deny in recent days that the Seahawks were listening to offers for Clark. The sense he projected was that it would take a very sweet offer to move Clark. And he got one. The Seahawks now have the 21st and 29th picks this year. But they no longer have an in-his-prime Star pass-rusher. That becomes an even greater need for Seattle.

Bengals have waived DT Adolphus Washington, the team announced today.

Running back Jonathan Stewart on Tuesday signed a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Panthers. The two-time Pro Bowl selection was released after the 2017 season and spent last season with the New York Giants. Stewart is the team's all-time leading rusher with 7,318 career yards. No surprise he came back to retire.

Sean McVay on Jared Goff leading up to the draft, "We have grown together."

Ideal draft scenarios for the Jets: 1. They drop one spot to four, swapping places with the Raiders. The Jets would get the Raiders' second-round pick (35), filling a void on their draft card. They'd have to send their second third-rounder (93) to Oakland in the trade, based on the trade chart. The Raiders are said to be smitten with NT Ed Oliver, and perhaps they'd be willing to jump a spot, thinking the Jets might take him. At four, the Jets would have a choice of DT Quinnen Williams or LB Josh Allen AND they'd have a pick in each of the first four rounds. 2. DE Nick Bosa unexpectedly falls to them at three. 3. The Jets stay at three and draft Allen. (This is my choice. My hunch is they'd prefer Williams over Allen.)
